We, too, can learn

It’s time I take my addiction by the hands,

I have been strong.

I still can be…

It’s not about draining the life from it,

let’s not fight fire with fire,

it is about balance.
Rivers, let me be one with you,

the lifeblood of our humanity,

I will be water,

boundless, life-saving, free,

I will cascade out of my mindset,

break the banks and flood myself,

I will take out the fire.
Sure, there will be smoke,

but in time this will also clear.
